Job Details

Amazon is focused on protecting the health and safety of our employees while continuing to serve people who need our services more than ever. Regular testing on a global scale across all industries would both help keep people safe and help get the economy back up and running. But, for this to work, we as a society would need vastly more testing capacity than is currently available.

Unfortunately, today we live in a world of scarcity where COVID-19 testing is heavily rationed. Until we have an effective vaccine available in billions of doses, high-volume testing capacity would be of great help, but getting that done will take collective action by NGOs, companies, and governments.

For our part, Amazon has begun the work of building incremental testing capacity.

The Role:

This role is part of an engineering test and automation team that develops and supports systems and processes running our lab lines. This role works closely with peer MTEs, and related cross functional teams. In addition to mechanical experience, candidates for this role will have some scripting or programming experience (Python, LabView, Basic, C/C++ or JavaScript).

We are looking for a talented engineer to help us with development of automation control systems that drive test standardization. This engineer will be responsible for contributing to the implementation and improvement of tools to automate our systems, making sure that we keep our setup and operations processes simple. This individual needs to be capable of working as an integral part of the manufacturing test engineering team to deliver products and services to simplify product deployment and scaling.
